It is up to you to notify your employer of any covered work injury and to ensure that you get the money that the law says you deserve. A Columbus, Georgia Workers' Compensation Lawyer at Sammons & Carpenter, P.C., will help you to make your claim and to resolve any problems that may arise as you deal with your employer and the workers' compensation insurer.

Although workers' compensation benefits are supposed to ensure that you do not face financial loss after an injury on the job, there are often problems getting the full amount of money you should receive. Some of the common issues that arise after a workers' compensation claim include:
  • A denial of legitimate claims.
  • Employers/insurers trying to force you to return to work too soon.
  • A denial of medical treatment your doctor suggests.
  • Improper medical treatment or unqualified doctors.
  • Employers/insurers underestimating wages when calculating disability benefits.
Your claim should not be denied provided you were hurt at work, since virtually all job-related injuries are covered by workers' compensation. This is true if you were hurt off your normal work-site, if you suffered an overexertion or repetitive stress injury, or if you got sick because you were exposed to toxins.

A Columbus, Georgia Workers' Comp. Lawyer at Sammons & Carpenter, P.C., will help you to get the money the law says you deserve. We can also assist in determining if you may have a personal injury or wrongful death claim against any non-employers who share responsibility for your injury.
